China Dental Implant Market Projected to See Rapid Growth in Coming Years, More Than Tripling in Size by 2020

According to a new report by iData Research, the Asia-Pacific dental implant fixture and final abutment market is valued at approximately USD $600 million.


VANCOUVER, BC, March 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - According to a recently published report series by iData Research (, forecasts shows that the underutilized dental implant market in China will significantly contribute to Asia-Pacific market growth due to the influence of training programs, growing awareness and a rising national income. The final abutment market will grow at higher rates as a result of the more expensive and innovative CAD/CAM abutment products acquiring market share from relatively cheap stock abutments.

"The recovering Japanese market, the implementation of the NHIS policy in South Korea, and growing awareness and income in China and Australia are all set to push the dental implant market forward," explains Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData. "Annual growth surpassing 10% is anticipated in coming years."

Other key findings from the 2015 iData Research report series entitled Asia-Pacific Markets for Dental Implants and Final Abutments:


Japan represents the second largest market for dental implants in the Asia-Pacific region. Despite selling fewer units than the market leader, South Korea, Japan is almost at par in terms of market value. The Japanese dental implant market mostly consists of premium-priced products.

South Korea

South Korea represents the majority of the dental implant and final abutment market in the Asia-Pacific region. As this country is home to a large number of globally leading dental implant companies, consumer awareness of dental implant procedures is relatively high.


Premium implant companies have dominated the Australian market for years. However, growing cost sensitivity and openness to discounted implant brands are set to shift the market. The premium segment of the market will grow far slower relative to the value and discount implant segments, resulting in declining ASPs.


The Chinese market for dental implants is the most underdeveloped and offers the greatest potential for growth. The growing national income and an influx of implant training programs have led to growing awareness.

Leading Competitors

Osstem Implants leads the Asia-Pacific dental implant market. It is expected that increased cost sensitivity in the overall market is set to increase Osstem's market share, especially in regions where their low-cost implants have recently been introduced. Osstem Implant is expected to gain share in all four regions: Japan, South Korean, Australia, and China.

Other notable competitors in the Asia-Pacific markets for dental implants and final abutments include DENTSPLY Implants, Straumann, and Nobel Biocare.
